If you want to buy DuckTales: Remastered on Steam or the Wii U eShop are running out of time. Capcom has revealed that the game will be removed tomorrow, August 8th, for purchase, but will be available for re-download for digital owners.
If you’re looking to purchase DuckTales: Remastered for PC, Wii U, PlayStation 3, or Xbox One, today is your last chance to do so. Capcom has recently revealed that WayForward’s amazingly well-done remastering is being removed from the Microsoft Store, Steam, Wii U eShop, and PlayStation Store early tomorrow.
DuckTales: Remastered is currently available in both digital and physical formats, if available at participating retailers, and was released back in 2013 at the beginning of the current generation. Until tomorrow, Capcom has the game on sale for 75% off its original price, bringing it down to $3.74 on all storefronts with PlayStation being exempt from this offer.
Those looking to purchase it will need to do so before the game disappears from purchase. If you do purchase it, however, no need to worry. The game will still be available for download, even once it’s removed, and will give fans a chance to relive their childhood memories or even make brand-new childhood memories if you didn’t play it back when it originally released on NES.
However, it’s not alone as a recent game to disappear for purchase from digital storefronts. DuckTales: Remastered will be joining the likes of Lego Lord of the Rings, Lego The Hobbit, Minecraft: Story Mode, and Alpha Protocol, all of which disappeared earlier this year with DriveClub for PlayStation 4 to join them next month with servers going offline in 2020.
You can see the times of removal as provided by Capcom down below:
- Wii U – August 9, 4:59 PM PDT
- PlayStation 3 – August 9, 8AM PDT
- Xbox 360, Xbox One (via Backwards Compatibility) – August 8, 5 PM PDT
- Steam (PC) – 4:59 PM PDT
While Capcom has not outlined the root cause behind DuckTales: Remastered being removed from digital stores, it’s safe to assume that it would be due to licensing issues as it has happened before with Alan Wake from Remedy, which only recently returned to digital stores.
